Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) Licence

Landlords need an HMO licence if a property has five or more tenants forming more than one household.

It is an offence to fail to license an HMO, and landlords can be prosecuted and fined up to £20,000 for failing to license.

You can apply for a new licence, renew an existing licence or change your licence online:
